Kite fishing

Kite fishing is absolutely my favored ways to catch yellowfin tuna off Cabo San Lucas,  in the wintertime and its definitely a set of skills which keeps you on your toes. The rigs you use are just as important as the hardware and there are a lot of selections with regards to big league kite fishing gear. For that matter, breaking fragile kite fishing equipment is unavoidable and in most instances a lot more goes wrong than right with regards to flying two kites in rough seas. We have learned to kite fish in virtually any fishable condition, and my goal here’s to illustrate many of the techniques we’ve utilized with great success throughout the years.

The Standard Cabo San Lucas Kite fishing Rig – This was the original kite fishing rig which has been utilized since the late 70s. Basically, it requires minimal rigging in a world where technical know how can mean the distinction between hooking fish in tough sea conditions or going home empty handed. The rig is straightforward, effective, and reliable. Whether you are rigging a line with two or 3 baits you need to use top quality release clips, a strong main line, and the strongest swivels you may get. Kite Hunter and Blacks are great kiting rigging kits that you could buy at almost any reputable tackle on line store.             Kite clip kit

Some might balk and say 3 baits is a bit much to manage but MAN UP! Most pleasure boats fish SIX baits at any time so learn to fish three. Most large charter boats and pro rigged center consoles fish two kites with up to six baits, flying kites off the riggers using stainless steel rings to keep the spread wide and controlled. Still, there are many lessons to be learned from this orientation and if you are up for the challenge, you can build a tournament winning spread for just under $3000.00. If you are dead set on fishing like the pros, you’ll have to invest in the gear first. Rigging the kite lines is basically the same, but the orientation of the gear inside the boat and how you run the lines is the key difference.

Cabo Fishing Report from April 10th to April 13th

Screen Shot 2017-04-11 at 3.39.18 PM

Undoubtedly, April is one of the greatest months for sports fishing in Cabo San Lucas. And this week was no exception. The weather was clear with periodic clouds which made game fishing even more fun, and less of a challenge as we didn’t have to battle it out with the harsh climate.

The average temperature was approximately around 27°C with low humidity at 51 percent and no precipitation. Let us tell you here that generally in April, in Cabo San Lucas, there is virtually no rainfall. Though it was slightly windy, with winds blowing at 16 km per hour, it kept us cool during the daytime so we pretty much enjoyed the weather conditions as they were ideal for bending the rods and catching some great game fish bite.

This week, we headed off-shore with a convoy of 10 yacht charters and a large group of avid anglers waiting to indulge in Cabo San Lucas sea action. At this time of the month, off-shore fishing in Cabo produces a good Striped Marlin and Wahoo bite. And that’s exactly what we found under the sea when we hit the shores.

What we loved about this week’s sports fishing in Cabo San Lucas was the fact that we got tons of opportunities to catch big Wahoos. These are about 8 feet long and weigh about 100 pounds. That’s massive!!

But wait, besides the size, as we mentioned previously, Wahoo fish are speedsters, and possibly one of the toughest pelagic predators to catch. They have the ability to streak through the waters upward of 60 mph and they fight similar to a wounded rhino. It’s crazy but absolutely fun for pro and adventurous sports fishing anglers alike. Catching these big speedsters is no less than an achievement.

The clear weather played a pivotal role in our amazing Wahoo catch success rate. We could clearly see the waters and Wahoo cruising sub-surface. This helped us put baits in their target zones and rig them up to catch a great Wahoo bite for everyone to enjoy during dinner.

During this week, we also found a good Yellow Fin Tuna bite and occasionally came across Dorado. It was absolutely a joy to be at sea this week just like last week and we can’t wait to hit the sea again next week. The anticipation of what will we find under the deep waters next week is making us super excited.

Cabo San Lucas Sports Fishing—Cruise Ship or Yacht Charter

Screen Shot 2017-02-17 at 2.07.21 PMScreen Shot 2017-01-13 at 7.55.34 PM

Are you planning to go to Cabo San Lucas on vacations and experience the thrill of sports fishing? If yes, then that’s great because there’s a wide variety of game fish bite that you can catch inshore and offshore, here in Cabo San Lucas! But wait, have you decided about your sea ride? Would you be hitting the sea in a cruise ship or charter a luxury yacht? If you haven’t decided yet and can’t make up your mind, then allow us to help you out.

Cruise Ship vs. Yacht Charter—Weigh Your Options

It’s said that it pays to weigh your options, and we couldn’t agree more! Here are some common factors that we have selected on which we’ll help you evaluate the two options available at your disposal so that it’s easier for you to make a confident and an informed choice:

Factor 1—Privacy

Hands down, in comparison to a cruise ship, a luxury yacht charter offers more privacy. You can explore the sea and enjoy sports fishing and other water sports with the people you know and love, like your friends and family. However, on a cruise ship, you can’t enjoy this level of privacy as the capacity of a cruise ship usually exceeds 3,000 passengers. Simply stated, it’s just too crowded.   

Factor 2—Control and Freedom

Chartering a yacht gives you unmatched freedom and control when it comes to organizing shore excursions and planning your sports fishing schedule. However, you can’t simply do that if you choose to ride the waves on a cruise ship primarily because outings on cruise ships are pre planned and so are the itineraries. And more importantly, if you choose to go on a cruise ship to explore Cabo San Lucas, then you’ll have to make sure that you comply with the rules, otherwise you’ll be left on the shore.

With a charter yacht, you get a chance to plan your own day and course as you like. However, the only constraint is that you need to return the chartered yacht on the agreed time and location.

Factor 3—Crew and Service

If you want to enjoy a personalized service and have access to a dedicated crew with a private chef who can prepare delicious meals on-demand by the sea for you and your friends, then yacht charter is your best bet. You can never enjoy this level of service on a cruise ship.

If you’re thinking of chartering a yacht, then look no further! Browse through our wide range of luxury yachts. You’ll be amazed with the variety of options that we have for you, and more importantly, the chartering prices are also very economical. We strive to provide you a luxurious chartering experience without breaking your budget because we want you to have the best time while game fishing, and go back home with great memories.

Cabo San Lucas fishing report from November 10th to November 19th 2016.

We have been catching big yellowfin tuna in the outer banks and lots of action close to shore. Boats have been coming in with a varied amount of Wahoos, Dorados, Rooster fish and spanish mackerel.

We also have been getting lots of action at the finger banks, for the last week boats that take the time to go out there and be patient enough eventually during the day there have been bait balls manifestations with lots of striped marling. Boats have been releasing up to 12 marling per day.

If you are fishing in Cabo San Lucas these week coming up, we strongly recommend fishing out on the Pacific, If you are going for Rooster fish,Wahoo and Dorado, you should get a panga or a 30 footer. But if you would like to target the big yellowfin tunas or the striped Marlin at the finger bank, you should charter a yacht or boat with twin engines so that you can run 50 miles out in about 2 to 3 hours.
